Washington Redskins Game 4 Preview: Philadelphia Eagles

The Washington Redskins, weather permitting, are scheduled to face their first division foe of the season, the Philadelphia Eagles, at FedEx Field this Sunday. Both teams enter this game looking to get to the .500 mark for the first time this season. Philadelphia looks to build off of a 24-17 win in New York vs. the Jets, while the Redskins try to erase the memory of a 32-21 loss to the Giants on Thursday Night Football.

The last time the Redskins faced the Eagles at home was Week 16 of last year, when they beat them in a 27-24 thriller, a rare bright spot in an awful 2014 campaign. The Redskins look to duplicate that success against an Eagles offense that looks very different from 2014. Sam Bradford is now the starting QB for coach Chip Kelly rather than Nick Foles/Mark Sanchez, and RBs DeMarco Murray Ryan Matthews join the party in place of LeSean McCoy. The Eagles will stick to the classic Chip Kelly offensive scheme, just with different personnel than the Redskins are accustomed. [Read more…]

Robert Griffin III completed 20 of 29 passes for 206 yards, but the Washington Redskins defense proved little match for the St. Louis Rams (1-1) who rallied in the second half to beat the Redskins 31-28 on Sunday.

Griffin ran for two touchdowns and added another on a 68-yard pass, but defensive errors and an ill-timed unsportsmanlike conduct cost the Redskins the opportunity to return to Washington with a 2-0 record.

The Redskins got things started early as cornerback Josh Wilson returned a fumble for a 30-yard touchdown on the very first play of the game. On the Redskins’ second snap on defense, however, defensive end Adam Carriker went down with a right knee injury. Just 10 plays later, Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo sacked Rams quarterback Sam Bradford and forced a fumble on Rodger Safford in a nasty collision that left Orakpo sidelined with a left arm injury and Safford out with a right knee injury.
